lazy developers have no excuses

kevnb1804d ago

Go develop something yourself then. Calling the folks who make your past time possible lazy is retarded. You have no idea how much work goes into even the games you think are shit...

Ezz20131804d ago (Edited 1804d ago )

they are lazy and don't try to spin it plz

3rd party dev's on consoles untill the end of this gen still can't reach the gfx of sony 1st/2nd party games

EDIT : yes they are lazy
when they give ps3 lazy ports from xbox360 and do not work on the ps3 form the ground
and them have the balls to come out and say the max the ps3

i can call them lazy like crytek, bethesda etc the list go on

kevnb1804d ago

I wonder if it being so close to a PC will emulators be a lot more readily available???

MasterCornholio1804d ago (Edited 1804d ago )


Just try and tell me how much work has gone into this.

Had enough? Ok how about this then.

Lazy developers exist. Deal with it.

I love the backseat developers on this site. Devs for years have been saying that the PS3 was hard to develop for. This was said from day one.

Kevnb, there's no point in trying to explain exactly why devs (3rd parties) has such problems with the PS3.

There was a member of this site who claimed to be a student of game development who posted something along the lines of "developers program in the easiest language and then simply transfer the syntax on other platforms."

So yeah, developers be lazy. All you have to do is look at the lazy programming of Bethesda to see that, that and the games that have annual releases are definitely a product of lazy developers.

Sorry, but I know how hard it is to create a game. An incredible amount of work goes into it. Even for small cellphone games. I'd hardly call someone lazy just because the quality of their game is low. They may be untalented, but the fact that they made a game that went to market and passed QA is proof that they are anything but lazy.

Eyeco1804d ago

So how much work goes into polished, bug free games that we consider great ? There are tons of examples for this.

M-M1804d ago

@kevnb You have to realize, developers do this for a living. If you've made it to the point where you're developing for consoles, developing games should be a cake walk, which means that there should be no reason to be lazy. I see where you're coming from though.

well, there is bethesda... but i imagine everyone else will do just fine with the PS4 architecture.

MysticStrummer1804d ago

Bethesda will achieve their dream of having the same bugs on all platforms.

BlmThug1804d ago

Sony are literally doing every single thing right :D

Leonex1803d ago

Lazy developers..agree...oh the Cell processor is to much work...

Everything Sony did is good for this gen gaming. I love that Nintendo is doing their own thing as well.

We will get specific experiences on each console and all will have their own great games.

I've never owned Sony but I may buy a PS4. It looks great.

Great to hear, the ease of the PS4 will allow developers to absolutely blitz the console in terms of unlocking its potential.

They gave the developers exactly what they wanted so there are no gripes against it. They can't say the PS4 is hard to develop for if this is the architecture they wanted.So everyone wins.Sony gets their support and developers don't have to work as hard to adapt to it and we get awesome games and no third party excuses
